LEON COUNTY (FCV) – Court precedent in Florida since a legal battle in 2015 has been against H.B. 633, “Informed Patient Consent,” which requires a 24-hour hold between counseling and the execution of an abortion.

Now, a judge in Leon County 2nd Circuit Court of Florida has indicated a reversal of the ruling that struck down the 2015 legislation.

Women in Florida will have to wait 24 hours before having an abortion after receiving in-person counseling. The measure was enacted to ensure that women are fully informed on the ramifications and potential mental effects of ending the life inside them.

Governor Ron DeSantis is expected to sign a 15 week abortion ban passed by the Florida legislature. The legal battle surrounding H.B. 633 is not connected to the novel abortion law.

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) – a leftist organization – said that it “singles out abortion and does not apply to other medical procedures, even those that involve far greater health risks.”

“Delaying access to abortion is medically unnecessary and is another tactic designed to take away people’s ability to get care when they’ve decided to have an abortion,” they argue.
